Without being to preachy about how you waste water while showering, a group of ID designers have come up with valid solutions instead. Not 1, not 2 but 3 options to save/conserve water is what the OLI Shower Water Conservation Project is all about. Briefly it includes a REFRESH-N-REMIND shower monitor, REDUCE-YOUR-USE mat and RELAX-N-REUSE seat. Hit the jump to know more.
REFRESH-N-REMIND Shower Monitor
This system uses the “guilt trip” on you effectively. It displays the amount of water you used in your previous shower and how much you are currently using. Numbers don’t lie, so get the drift that you need to use a bit less than your previous bath.
This pressure intuitive mat is embedded with sensors that switch on the shower as soon as you get within the cascade range, and automatically switches it off, should you move away.
This seat is for those who sit down on a stool or something whilst bathing. The gaps in the seat lead the water to storage pitchers that collect your used bath water. This water can be recycled for watering plants etc.
Remind, reduce and reuse is that mantra for the Oli project, and I wish it all success.
